In a nutshell: Using structural and chemical changes to establish the charring conditions of archaeological hazelnut shells

Abstract:

Charred hazel (Corylus sp.) nutshells are found in abundance at many archaeological sites across the northern hemisphere. This paper aims to investigate the conditions under which hazelnut shells can become charred, by comparing experimentally charred modern hazelnut shells with archaeological material shells from three western Scottish Mesolithic sites. We build on previous research by refining the temperature range investigated and use Scanning Electron Microscopy and Fourier Transform Infr...
